A Day of Screenings, Panels & Networking

We will be showcasing new and emerging narratives,, Short Films, Web-series/Digital series, Docu-series & New Media that have received some traction (or are destined to) in today's marketplace. We will also be discussing the story concepts, marketing and promotional techniques to help maximize your contents potential. The goal is to formulate strategies and ideas that will support and show case our community of content creators, cultivate relationships and partnerships as we continue to build and push our industry forward.

    Since this is a new festival, I didn't quite know what to expect. But let me tell you, I had such an AMAZING time at this summit and I can't wait to submit again next year. The energy was so positive and everyone was friendly. I made amazing connections and nurtured relationships with people I've met earlier in the year through the circuit. The quality of the selections was amazing. I was there from the beginning to the end and it felt like I was binge-watching some amazing shows in a cozy theater. Highly recommend.
